It seems that the Wolsztyn steam kettles which are due to be taken off their regular Wolsztyn-Poznan passenger service by 2017 may not be hauling the world’s last regular steam-hauled passenger service running on the national railway network!

    Don’t forget the Isle of Man, also still running steam-hauled regular timetabled services on their national railway!

    Looks like a photo special organized for wealthy tourists. I wouldn`t wonder if the engine is scrapped in the meantime…..

    North Korea has, though, long been tantalising as regards envisageable surviving regular steam working. Hopes die hard… Unfortunately, not a place to which one can go and roam around freely to find things out at first hand.
